Easy CP

1. Defeat the Boss at the apex of Taejin Tower.
2. Take the elevator down to level four, and then the other elevator (the first room on the left when exiting the elevator) up to level 5.
3. You will see a mission statue directly in front of the elevator (mission 24)

Easy CP

Performing the following trick will gain you 6,600 CP in about 2 minutes. At Gran Pulse there are two Behemoth-like enemies fighting each other and when you approach them a preemptive attack will always happen. Use the following Optima set-up: Attacker/Enhancer/Enhancer, wait until you get Haste and Fire elemental offense and then switch to Attacker/Blaster/Blaster. Killing the purple creature first will make the white one easier to defeat. If you return near the save point they will respawn allowing you to repeat the process.

Easy CP

Do the following trick during the assault on the Estheim house. Instead of taking the red circle out of the room run around the circular hallway. The soldiers that you will encounter are easy to defeat and you can gain anywhere from 120 to 200 CP per battle along with an incentive chip which you can then sell. The easiest way to perform this trick is to attack the soldiers at the window instead of turning around and going straight for the soldiers that are behind you. Keep going around the hall attacking and by the time you make it back the soldiers at the window which you killed will have respawned.

Sprint Shoes Accessory

These can either be found or you can make them. Below is one of the methods to make them using a Tetradic Tiara. Follow the steps in the exact order. This method works best if you have the accessory that makes you more likely to get a drop after a battle. Make sure you upgrade it to the top tier as well.
1. Buy Four Iron-Bangles (500 Gil each)
2. Make sure there are no Tetradic Tiaras in your inventory.
3. Repeatedly do mission 7 (Disc 3, Gran Pulse) until you get the rare drop of a Tetradic Tiara.
4. Save the game.
5. Break down all four Iron-Bangles.
6. Upgrade Tetradic Tiara level 1 to Tetradic Tiara ? (only one level till star).
7. Break down Tetra Tiara ?
8. Repeat the steps as desired.

Secret Animation

Turn the left stick in a slow circle on the field screen and the character that you are controlling will perform a secret animation.

Capped Weapon Experience Equation

The following is an equation to understand how much experience you will need to spend to get any weapon capped at it's current level.
N = Increase your weapon will grow after every level obtain. For example at level 1-2 you need 1,000 experience. From level 2-3 you need 1,125 exp. N = 1125 minus 1000, which in this case is 125. So n for this weapon would equal 125.
X = The total number of levels you will need to cap (Star) your weapon. For example, from 1 to 21 (Star) for Tier 1 weapons requires 20 levels (21-1=20).
B = The base experience that your weapon has. For example, Axis Blade at level one needs 1,000 experience to reach level 2. 1,000 is the base experience.
The equation is as follows to determine how much experience it will cost to..

Change Options before Boss Battle

To access a menu screen that will allow you to reconfigure paradigms, weapons, etc. Press 'Menu' just as the cinematic before a Boss battle ends.

Loot Incentive Chips endlessly

When you're at Palumpolum - The Estheim Residence (which is Hope's home) in Chapter 7, do the following:
1) Open the nearby treasure ball for Phoenix Down then approach Hope.
2) When you gain control of Fang, step in the red circle and press the switch on TV.
3) A battle occurs afterwards. After that, you can save your game.
4) There will be 2 groups of enemies: one close to the save station and the other on the right alley on the right. They spawn indefinitely and you can nab Incentive Chips which are sold 2500 gil a piece.
To make them respawn, just circle the right alley going to the left and reaching back to the save station. Depending on your route, same group of enemies on the same place will spawn and you can fight them again.

Major cp with best strategies

go to the (northern highplain-archyite steppe) and there will be a purple behemoth king and a white megistotherian wolf like monster.those give 6600cp
you always get first attack with them
right in the same location there is a cactaur.

Trapezohedron Mulitiplication

As most of us know, Trapezohedrons are the transformation catalysts for creating Ultima Weapons for every character. You COULD spend countless hours of brutal grinding to get enough Gil to both upgrade your weapon all the way (around 1,500,00 Gil and 2 seperate catalysts, depending on the weapon) and a Trapezohedron, which costs a whopping 2,000,000 Gil, or you could do this exploit. Granted, you will need both the Gil and Trapezohedron the first time around, but the exploit will quickly make up for it. Two characters can perform this, Fang and Vanille. Upgrade Vanille's Tigerclaw, Healer's Staff, Belladonna Wand, or Mistilteinn to make the weapon Nirvana, or upgrade Fang's Dragoon Lance, Shamanic Spear, Punisher, Pandoran Spear, or Gae Bolg to make Kain's Lance. Dismantle either to get ..

Easiest and Fastest CP in Game

This may be a difficult fight if your not strong enough. after you get to Gran Pulse and go through the Mah'habara caves, take Atomos to Sulyya Springs then ride him again and he will take you to the secret part of the Mah'habara caves (this is also where u need to go to kill one of the mission marks). there will be 2 forks in your path. take a left at BOTH. you will come to a place where there are 6 of those bomb guys. fight them by spamming quake/firaga with Hope and have the other 2 people as COMs to do blitz. you will regain slightly more than 1 TP after each each fight so use quake at least once per battle. this battle will get you 7140 CP in about 10-20 sec if u kill them all before they self-destruct (more that self-destruct, less CP you get). after each battle go back the way you..
